Daria has moved to Berlin from Kyiv.
She is a burlesque performer and artist, and she has the most incredible period face and a fantastic aesthetic. She recently modeled for the excellent Berlin life-drawing team Sketcherei, and the session was online as well as IRL, so I was able to join!
I love Sketcherei life-drawing sessions.
The models are always thoughtfully chosen, in allyship, and beautifully lit! The wonderful team Alexandra and Liana of Sketcherei really care about sex workers, about art and about drawing.
As I have said many times, the Sketcherei team is devoted to fundraising.
This event raised money for Berlin NGO Berlin to Borders, a local org created by nightlife titans.
I tried my new Pentel brush pen and I liked it.
Using the Pentel pen, water-based ink and another brush pen loaded with water. Instant grey washes! Plus a pale peachy watercolor brush pen. And that’s it! No pencil.
Here’s Daria’s insta and photography insta.
More about Berlin to Borders: this homegrown humanitarian org is providing direct aid to the most vulnerable folx escaping the war in Ukraine. They are hiring for paid work and looking for volunteers.
See the website or linktree for how to donate, volunteer or get hired!
